Christmas memories

The Christmas preparations have begun in the Sandbox.  The tree is up and decorated and the ornaments have been allocated to their spots around the house.  I have a little ceramic white Christmas tree that belonged to my Husband's Mother that was made for her by her Sister who loved to do ceramics.  It doesn't cast much light but it glows wonderfully at night in the dark hallway.  The little tree is a way of remembering members of the family who are no longer with us but leave us with objects that bring them closer to us at Christmas.

The display of plastic figures that make up the Creche was purchased by my Husband's Mother for our kids when they were small.   I could purchase a new set with higher end figures but this one is special to us.  It is the memories of loved ones and occasions that make this season so special.

The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
